[greenyes] Re: [Sustainable] [Fwd: Corporate Personhood IsDoomed]
Pete Pasterz posted from a book review:

 "And for 100 years after the Constitution was ratified,
various governmental entities led corporations around on leashes,
like obedient puppies, canceling their charters promptly if they
compromised the public good in any way. The leashes broke in 1886, the puppies got away, and the public good was increasingly compromised -- until it was finally displaced altogether."

Interesting analogy on the issue of corporate accountability and regulation  Did the leashes break or did the puppies' handlers give them a trial run after it was suggested by their owners?  And was the trial run so engaging and the rewards to the handlers so great that they never looked back over 136 years?
